Skyline Structural Engineering is currently led by Brent Cline, who serves as President and Principal Engineer of the company.  Brent began his structural career working for a small engineering firm while studying Architectural Engineering at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo.  Upon graduating in 1997, he took a position with a large structural engineering firm in Oregon working on projects for such notable clients as Nike.  Returning to the Central Valley of California to start a family, he went to work for an established structural engineering firm in Fresno where he progressed to the role of an Associate within the firm.  After gaining more than a decade of experience and working with both small & large engineering offices, Brent opened Skyline Structural Engineering, Inc. in 2006 to blend the best of his previous work experiences and form a client oriented company focused on quality design. 

Brent believes strongly that clear communication and collective collaboration are essential to the successful design and construction of each project.  He is committed to providing coordinated structural systems and detailing solutions that compliment and facilitate often challenging and complex elements of an architectural design without compromising structural integrity.  His project experience includes a variety of structural systems utilizing concrete, structural steel, cold-formed steel, masonry, wood and heavy timber for new and existing construction.  Brent can be relied upon to assess and select structural solutions that are efficient and appropriate to provide sensible structures of exceptional quality tailored to suit the specific needs of each project.
